Revision of Student Job Terms to be Discussed Further

The revision of student hiring practices in Kapuskasing is being tabled until the next council meeting.

Previously, the discussion of extending student job terms to four years instead of two was brought up due to a smaller than normal hiring pool the last few years.

Councillor David Plourde says the town was a few applicants shy of filling its summer positions.

He says possibly extending them to accommodate a full post-secondary education could make students want to apply more.

Councillor Martin Dennison brought up concerns of students being locked out if the terms are extended, to which the mayor proposed a possible compromise.

The suggested compromise is half of summer jobs have a four-year term, with the other half on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The next public meeting is tentatively slated for May 17th.
